In the world ravaged by the greenhouse effect and overpopulation, an NYPD detective investigates the murder of a big company CEO(IMDb).
One of the best and most intelligent science-fiction movies of all time. The future here is the very model of a dystonian one but this is no hunger games and the future is grim and the secret of Soylent Green grim.
This is a world of overpopulation where the split between the haves and the have-not's is ever present.
There are much deeper and intelligent messages here than you would expect, but which in truth is the mark of good science-fiction.
Charlton Heston is on top form and Edward G. Robinson in his final screen performance wonderful. The scene where, having discovered the truth he goes to a place where for signing over his life he can see images and hear music from the past, is truly wondrous, emotional and very sad.
